Clashes reported between troops, rioters near Ramallah

An Israel Radio reporter says protests have broken out near Ramallah, with some two dozen rioters hurling rocks at troops and setting fire to tires.

Troops at the scene are responding with tear gas and rubber bullets, he says.

The unrest is apparently taking place at the same junction near the settlement of Beit El that saw clashes a day earlier.
